What’s the weather like in Mexico in November?
There’s different weather around Mexico, which has a Caribbean coast in the east and North Pacific coast in the west. The Yucatán Peninsula, which separates the Caribbean Sea from the Gulf of Mexico, is really popular, and you’ll get lots of hot weather there in November.
The Yucatán Peninsula has tropical weather that’s quite similar all year round. Large parts of Mexico have tropical conditions, although things get less extreme towards the Tropic of Cancer. You’ll find the popular resorts of Cancún and Playa del Carmen on the peninsula. You’ll get high temperatures and plenty of sunshine in November, which is a bit cooler and drier than the height of summer.
If you’re in Cancún during November you’ll have an average high of 30ºC. Things stay nice and warm in the evenings, with temperatures only falling to 20ºC at night. At 28ºC, the sea’s perfect for swimming, while humidity’s high. There’s 91mm of rain over eight days, and you can expect 11 hours of daylight with six hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be very high so protect your skin with plenty of sun cream in the sun. Sunset’s at around 6pm.
Things to Do
The weather’s great for exploring Mexico’s rich history in November as it’s less humid than summer. If you’re staying on the Yucatán Peninsula then head to Chichen Itza, an important ancient city where you can visit Mayan temples and the Kukulcan Pyramid. The earlier sunset means the night’s technically longer, leaving more time to enjoy Cancún’s nightlife.
